I have a question for fellow cold weather aroiders. I've been mulling around
an idea for outdoor culture. I've heard some folks grumble the tubers
eventually get to a size where they can hardly be dug anymore to be brought
inside for their dormancy.
How about this: instead of planting them in spring when the ground warms,
WHAT ABOUT putting them on TOP of the ground and THEN burying them with a
loose, well draining mixture of leaf mold and sand?--sort of a tuber
mausoleum. Then when they go dormant simply uncover, tip into a wheel barrow
or other suitable implement (if too heavy to lift) and cart indoors.
What do you think?
